House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) sat down for an interview on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” to discuss the Senate runoff election in Georgia. Scalise emphasized that the entire 2020 election was coming down to Georgia, making the Senate races in Georgia the top priority for Republicans.
Two incumbent Republicans, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, will face off against their Democrat opponents in a January 5th run-off that will decide the balance of power in the Senate.
Representative Scalise said, “It’s all on the line. I know I have already hosted events. We’ve raised over $200,000, and I hope everybody stays engaged in those races. I hope the people of Georgia vote for both Senator Perdue and Senator Loeffler. Everything is on the line.”
Republicans need to win at least one of those races to hold onto a razor-thin margin in the Senate. Should they lose both seats, then the Senate will be split 50-50 with presumptive Vice President Kamala Harris being a tie-breaking vote.
Republicans have a chance to control the Senate should Joe Biden ultimately win the election. Biden would be forced to work with Republicans to appoint his cabinet and judicial picks and pass his legislative agenda.
If Biden is forced to work with Republicans, then the worst of the left’s plans will be stopped dead. Losing the presidency would practically be inconsequential should the Senate majority remain red.
